French and crap appear to go together well
This car is deadset the biggest pile of crap I think I have ever had the displeasure of driving.
Misaligned panel gaps
Lethargic power from engine (did someone say Sporty...hmmm)
Manual gearbox allows selection from 5th to reverse. That is, there is no lock out on reverse so you could accidently select reverse instead of 4th when changing down and have the gearbox come flying up through the floor.
Door trim rattles
Misaligned plastic trims
Plastic under steering column loose
Rear brakes completely stuffed. Squealing and shuddering
Knocking from front left wheel over even minor bumps in the road
Air con intermittently switches itself off
Digital centre display invisible in sunlight
When I switch on lights, I get a electric buzzing sound from the stalk.
Drivers seat loose
Drivers power window stopped working
Remote central locking works when it feels like it. I now lock it with the key and check each door before walking away as I don't trust it.
Rattle from boot lid.
All in 15,000km.
Who would have thought.
I would never and I recommend no one else ever buy a French car. I gave it a go, but was let down. I am spreading the word. Back to Japanese cars forever now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
